this is a superrare, Gerald Genta designed, first execution IWC Yacht Club 2 Jumbo in steel. The reference 3012 has only been produced in an extremely short period between 1977/78. In that time this Quartz version was the flagship and most expensive of the Yacht Club 2 series. The 38mm steelwatch (serial 225xxxx) appears to be in stunning condition with only a few signs of wearing on the bracelet. It´s featuring an overwhelmingly beautiful Linen dial with warmtoned tritium filled indicies and a matching handset. the lume-filled indicies and double indicies at 12, as well as the „t swiss t“ signature only appear in the early 3012 version, which was produced for less than a year as mentioned above, followed up by the reference 3312 with a different dial design and movement. The IWC Quartz caliber 2405 is working perfectly as it should. The Yacht Club 2 Jumbo with it´s very flat 38mm case has a comparable wrist appearance like it´s much more common brothers PP Nautilus, AP Royal Oak or IWC Ingenieur, which are all Gerald Genta sportchic creations from the 1970s. This watch will currently fit wrist up to a range of 18,5 cm circumference.
